I got to take the coach out for a spin today. Got the passenger side windshield replaced. All set for a mini trip as things are starting to open up for travel.

The charge controller needs to be close to the batteries. This one gives you 16 feet of cable so you can remote the panels from the batteries. With DC power the wire size needs to be thicker the longer the run or youll burn up the wires.

Also, its available now and the HF panels are on back order.

Thanks Barb, Ill look it over.
Two things I noticed on a quick look was the HF panel said it generated 30 amps and the Amazon one only 25 amps. Also the Amazon is slightly larger in physical size but not by much. I do like the price for the whole kit!

Thanks again for your input!

Thanks Barb, Wayne needs to be reminded of the question often. Hes like a politician, in that he answers the question he wants to answer and not the one ask!

I ask Wayne what time it was one day and he gave be direction on how to make a watch.
